Fiddling with http://api.drupal.org/api/function/conf_path/7 is off
course a solution but it misses the 'it works out of the box' wish. But
maybe I'm just too lazy ;)

I now use sites/default/files more and skip the multi site option for
making staging more workable.

Production is not always under control ie when having a NFS mounted
files directory improper sym linked.
